Question about Sanyo DS27930 27" TV
My wife and daughter were watching TV recently when they heard a pop or crack like sound then suddenly there was no picture and no sound. Naturally the warranty had already expired....two years ago. Local repair shops want $150 to $300 to look at and or repair the thing. That is not practical for us seeing how the TV is almot four years old. We can't afford one of the newer flat TV's on the market now either. So, I pulled the back off the TV but did not see anything obviously wrong. Even the fuse looks okay. I was careful not to touch certain things and have done nothing to the TV so far. I'm thinking of trying the get a new fuse at Radio Shack, though I don't know if that will get the TV working again. Anyways what went wrong with it and can I fix it without it costing too much?
My guess would be that you had a surge on the mains power. check for damaged or burnt parts in the power supply and or Line Stage. sometimes transistors and/or IC's can blow off a piece of the package. So check those as well. I do not have any info on this model but the specs are pretty much the same as any other Tube TV. Regards and good luck, JUS004

Something did Pop and yes it will cost 150 - $300 to repair. The question is what would a new unit of the same size and quality cost. If the repair is about a third of the cost of a new unit , it would still be considered economical in RSA. If repaired it may run again for another 4 years so the Math speaks for itself. The decision entirely yours in the end. It could really be anything that popped so to give advice would be difficult. However, try the fuse first. It is certainly the cheapest option at the moment.
